Should I start quoting the sages of old on this issue?<quoted text>
Actually, Leviticus IS NOT DISCUSSING Homosexuality, it is discussing Rape because that was what was done in order to break the fighting spirits of the Canaanite Warriors......nothing more and nothing less..........today it might apply more to bisexual men or men who are in prison.....if it applies at all!!!
The Mitzvot Commandments(A List of the 613 Mitzvot):
Only lists one that may be possible with regards to homosexuality........but it could also be towards rape of another man. 103 Not to commit sodomy with a male (Lev. 18:22)(CCN116).
You'd think that if it was so bad, there would be more against it....but there isn't and Leviticus DOES NOT apply to the Gentiles!!!
Or how about the many hundreds of modern Rabbis whom adhere to the original meaning?
No amount of modern reinterpretation and looking for loop-holes changes the original meaning of the Hebrew text or how the religion's adherents understood it for the last thousands of years, lol.
This idea that the Torah doesn't forbid male-male sexual acts is a fairly modern one.
The issue isn't whether or not it is, technically speaking, forbidden (which it is), but rather how should homosexuals be treated in this day and age.
Rabbi Michael Gold
"The Torah forbids the homosexual act, known as mishkav zakhar, but has nothing to say about homosexuality as a state of being or a personal inclination.
